Slipstreaming in Deliberate Creation
Earlier this week I was talking with Master of Creation member Anna D, who shared an impressive story about sidestepping a potentially challenging encounter that I was sure I wouldn’t have handled nearly as well.
Ditto when I spoke with Sophie (of Sophie’s Bliss), about her expert management of another vibrational challenge that I could see myself going splat with.
I knew the next time my panties were in a twist on a topic my fellow creators navigate so well, I would follow their example.
Kind of like “drafting” – I would follow their lead, getting behind someone who knew the way, to help me reduce my own resistance.
The more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea. Ease and flow, right?!
In trying to brush up LOA drafting, I couldn’t find anything on the subject. (If you know of something on this topic, please share!)
Here’s what Wikipedia said about drafting in general:
Drafting or slipstreaming is where two objects align in a close group reducing the overall effect of drag due to exploiting the lead object’s slipstream.
Especially when high speeds are involved, drafting can significantly reduce the paceline’s average energy expenditure required to maintain a certain speed and can also slightly reduce the energy expenditure of the lead vehicle or object.
Drafting is used to reduce wind resistance and is seen most commonly in bicycle, car racing, and speedskating, but also cross-country skiing, running, and swimming.
And I may add (for fun consideration) … in deliberate creation.
I wasn’t sure what slipstream meant until I looked it up (also from Wikipedia):
To slipstream refers to the act of following closely behind another person in order to pay reduced attention to the direction, route or hazards, (e.g. while consulting a mobile phone), or in order to gain a competitive advantage or quicker journey time, (e.g. following closely behind a high speed emergency vehicle).
It is particularly used in the context of walking closely behind another person to avoid bumping into objects, or other pedestrians, to avoid stepping into hazards such as puddles or dog feces, and to follow their lead on other hazards such as steps, curbs, ice, inanimate objects, warnings and stop signs.
What might that look like in application of real world manifesting?
The other day I was in a conversation where I could feel my blood pressure going up and the words in my head lining up in sharp formation, if you know what I mean.
But someone else present expressed a very different energy. She was calm, cool, supportive. Open and secure. It was lovely, even if unfamiliar.
Smart girl that I am, I got behind our lovely leader and kept quiet until my energy softened, too. I drafted off someone else’s good vibe.
At a recent in-person meeting, I noticed there were different energies flowing in the room. I purposely sat next to the person who seemed exceptionally good at letting potential challenges roll off them like water off a duck’s back.
I’ll do my share of leading when I’m up, but if there’s a chance to improve my vibe by lining up behind someone else, I’m all for it.
Big thanks to the many creators here in this community who give me a break from making my own rough way and let me step behind them to benefit from their positive energy.
Do you ever draft off someone else’s good vibe?
